Following the launch of the PSPgo, Sony has told GamesIndustry.biz that sales of PSP hardware are up over 120 percent in the UK. The PSP-3000 has also seen a boost in sales with a big help from the newly released Gran Turismo and FIFA 10, which have also contributed to a lift in PSP software sales.
“PSPgo has performed in line with our expectations, driving 100 per cent incremental volume for the category and has benefited the broad PSP portfolio with PSP-3000 also enjoying a big lift,” said SCEE in a statement.
The new PSPgo launched last Thursday, Oct. 1, and sells for $249.99 in North America and GBP 224.99 in the UK, respectively. Consumers who buy a PSPgo before October 10 will be able to download a free copy of Gran Turismo, and UK buyers can get a deal to get another three games for free if they register with Sony online.
